Pilot in One Piece Flying Suit, USS Bunker Hill, The Second World War
Flight clothing was largely left up to the individual’s personal preference. Most pilots wore a khaki shirt and trousers, instead of the one piece flying suit, as the one piece flying suits were deemed too hot or uncomfortable.
The QAC (Quick, Attach, Chest) or QAS, parachute harness was worn by pilots. When not in the plane, the leg straps are normally snapped to the sides of the harness to keep them out of the way. The parachute pack, pararaft kit, and seat cushion are not attached to the harness, as these were most often left in the plane. As the pilot climbed into the seat, it was then easier for them to be attached to the QAS harness.
